CHADNEY CHRISTLE

Neighborhood: Downtown Dallas, Texas

Artists that inspire you? My musical inspiration comes from various artist & genres like Snarky Puppy, Micki Miller, gospel group Commission & The Clark Sisters, Ella Fitzgerald, Bob Marley, Pavarotti (opera singer), Tank & Chris Brown. Yes, I listen to them all consistently to keep a musical balance between relevance and old school.

How would you describe your music/fashion style? I’m a free spirit. I don’t like to be categorized. Just like music has different styles & genres, I want to connect with every group in the audience. My goal is to introduce to some and remind to some. (My style vs. my inspiration) As far as my fashion style, I’m a girly tomboy. I own 102 watches (addicted). When you see Chadney, expect to see dope specs (glasses), a tasteful watch w/arm candy, some crazy color nails, backpack & dope sneakers. But I can also wear you out with some stilettos or cute wedges and a pencil skirt here & there. Again I don’t like to be boxed in :).

Your thoughts on the Texas music scene? DFW has so much talent. We really call each other brothers & sisters. The artists we grew up or look up to we call uncle and auntie (OG’s). I’m not saying Dallas is the absolute best, but there has to be a reason why everyone is moving here from one music scene to THIS music scene. I love and will rep my city all day.

The biggest challenge you face in pursuing your musical career? Transitioning to full-time music from the corporate world. It doesn’t work for everybody, but it worked for me. It was a huge adjustments and sacrifice. Money vs. passion. People will have their opinions as to how to live YOUR life but you have to do what’s best for YOU. It works for Chadney.
What’s the best advice you could give a new and upcoming artist? Be confident in what type of artist you are. Have an honest team working with you (not just a “yes” team). Be consistent. Continue to get inspired by others and CONNECT with your followers. Your fans are the ones buying, sharing, posting and supporting your stuff and putting money into your pocket. Never forget that. As quickly as God can give it to you, He can definitely snatch it away. Stay humble.

Where can we find/buy your music? I have a single entitled “INOJ (in the name of Jesus)” and an EP entitled “Wait on him” available on all digital store outlets. You can follow me on FacebookInstagram & Twitter.
